Stone Angel

Stone Angel

written by: Angel Edwards



Stands the stone angel
inanimate record keeper
stone pen with etched plume
writing in
stone made opened ledger

in still attendance
dance three porcelain cupids
newly ground snow white designed clay
already show slightly chipped wings
these ornaments
are fragile things
they are not built to stay

for now they live
in the moonlit graveyard
but they do not live
The stone angel record keeper
the three porcelain cupids
they have never lived
they will never die

watching over
the once living
long gone or newly dead
their presence
calmly thrilling
respect yet
best not
regard them with dread

guardians of the graveyard
